Lower D Update 08/05/19

It’s looking like a hot weekend down in the canyon, temps are forecasted into the hundreds with clear skies so bugs will be out and flying. The dry fly action in the late evening has been the most consistent time of day to bring fish to the top. We fish with a size 18-20 tan …

Crooked Update 08/05/19

They bumped the flows last week so the river should be just about as clear as it gets. The weather was hot this weekend, this will push fish into the deeper holes and tail outs so go heavy when you’re nymphing. Euro nymphing is a great way to get deep fast and catch fish, but …

East Update 08/05/19

With the warmer weather forecasted into early next week and light wind in the evenings the callibaetis hatch should still be prevalent.

Callibaetis are still the ticket up there with bugs coming off in the mornings and throughout the day. Ill fish a cripple pattern on 5x when the hatch starts and switch to an adult later in the morning. Once we find fish that are feeding it can take a couple fly changes to dial in …

Lower Deschutes Update 7/18/19

Summertime Caddis are in full swing on the Lower Deschutes. The slight bump in temperatures has really solidified the consistency of the hatch, and with a couple of days forecasted in the upper 90s next week we should be getting right into the peak of the hatch. There is incredible structure and habitat for the …

Metolius Update 7/18/19

The Metolius River is one of the area’s most consistent fisheries in terms of accessible water and fish behavior. While the river may not boast the greatest numbers of fish per mile, its large and elusive Redbands and Bull Trout make for one of the most challenging and rewarding native trout fisheries in the state. …
